1986-2020: Celebrating Scotland's Music for over 30 Years

Posted: 26th October 2020

Fiona J Mackenzie - Duan Nollaig (A Gaelic Christmas)

A unique recording of Christmas songs in Gaelic by one of Scotland’s favourite Gaelic singers and former Mod Gold Medal winner Fiona J Mackenzie. Includes such favourites as Silent Night, Away In A Manger, In The Bleak Midwinter, Child In A Manger, We Wish You A Merry Christmas, Halleluiah (featured in the film Shrek) and more. A quite stunning album.

See also the companion Duan Nollaig Carol Book.

Keltik Elektrik – Edinburgh Hogmanay Party Mix

A best-selling Greentrax favourite, ideal for your Christmas or New Year dance party. It really grooves. This is a fun album for people who enjoy a “Celtic fling”. Was TV-advertised on its release and has achieved remarkable sales.

The Best Of Bill Barclay

This live album of Edinburgh’s own Bill Barclay includes a re-recording of the “hit single” The Twelve (Drunken) Days Of Christmas plus other songs, interspersed with Bill’s side-splitting humour. Great for Christmas and New Year parties. Was on the Bah! Humbug compilation album (now deleted).

Eric Bogle - By Request

Includes the hilarious Santa Bloody Claus, in which Eric Bogle takes a swipe at the ever-increasing commercialism of Christmas, which was previously on the Bah! Humbug album. Included on this album are No Man’s Land (aka Greenfields of France), And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda, Leaving Nancy, Now I’m Easy and more - his most requested songs.

The advance orders on Fraser Bruce’s album Every Song’s A Story have been amazing. The first pressing is due for delivery from the factory on 29th October and pre-orders from this website will be despatched then.

Dick Gaughan’s Harvard Tapes continues to be a top seller.

Elaine (our accounts and toyalties person) has worked her socks off throughout 2020 adapting a new royalty accounting system to replace the old and outdated one. All recordings have now been dealt with but there are still some publishing issues to be completed. Good news for artists - album royalties will be paid in January/February 2021.

Brian McNeill has occupied himself during the coronavirus lockdown by furiously writing new books. What a talent - singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter, record producer and author, among other talents. On his April release No Silence, Brian unsurprisingly plays all the instruments!

Stevie Palmer’s recent album We Become The Sunshine has been “album of the week” on a number of radio programmes since its September release.

Radio Regentrude in Germany have made Greentrax Recordings their Featured Label Partner Of The Week commencing 28th September. Additionally, Greentrax song tracks were also part of their Song Of The Week. Greentrax Recordings will be presented on Sunday October 4th between 4pm and 6pm.

Saturday October 10th is National Album Day.

After many months of lockdown, Greentrax is again operating out of the office at Cockenzie on a full-time basis. Elaine has returned to the office with her computer, after running Greentrax almost single handed (and doing a brilliant job) throughout the lockdown period, while Ian was in isolation at home! Both are enjoying the return to working in the office – and near normality.

We are hearing of many radio plays for the Stevie Palmer album We Become The Sunshine. We believe this album should have very wide interest.

The Dick Gaughan album The Harvard Tapes - Definitive Gaughan Concert From 1982 continues to be a bestseller. A large royalty is going to Dick from these sales.

With the lockdown behind us, new projects are getting underway again and include A Tribute To Hamish Henderson Volume 2 - being produced by Dr Fred Freeman with singer John Morran and others - and two solo piping albums, by the hugely talented Eddie Seaman and Kyle Warren.

Also in the pipeline is an album by Fraser Bruce. This is Fraser’s first solo venture for a long, long time and after his more recent collaboration with brother Ian Bruce.
